Directory & Rules


So here's a simple directory of some of the important places in the club:

:la: Frequently Asked Questions!! Check before asking please!
:la: Folder Descriptions!
:la: Contests!


:: Reglas en español! :: Règles en français!

:target: We have absolutely 0 tolerance for rudeness.

If you are rude for no valid reason, you will be banned promptly. Our admins are here to help you. We are respectful to everyone and we expect that back. Though confrontations are very, very rare, we believe it is necessary to post a warning regardless.

Thank you.

NO traced or edited work.
NO Fanart of non original characters
If they are accompanied by at least one of your own, then it will be accepted.
We do accept Fan Characters and Characters created in games. Please specify in your artist comments or the correspondence message!

NO Unfiltered Mature Works.
NO overly fetish/erotic art.
This includes breast expansion, boobs big enough to crush children, squirting, etc. A little bit is fine, but if it's seemingly solely for erotic purposes, take it elsewhere. Sorry guys.

NO obvious sex scenes, please.
Cropping naughty bits isn't discreet enough, either. It's for the same reason as mentioned above.

NO messy sketches, doodles of an eyeball, minimalism where you can't even recognize the character, etc.
We want to display your best works, not something you doodled in two seconds on the edge of your paper. [Memes however, can still be sketchy.]

NO submitting work that is practically the same image over and over.
This includes, different versions of the same picture. Colour swaps etc. We want diversity in our galleries.

We only accept developed Characters
If your character is not developed in someway or is a one off character, we will not accept them.

The limit is now two a day, per folder

How to Submit:

Merely join the club by clicking the button at the top titled "join our group"
Click to browse the gallery.
Click on the appropriate folder, and once inside, click "contribute to this folder."
Then either upload a deviation, or contribute one you've already uploaded.

The Featured folder is for admin selected works only.

What to Submit:

We accept any kind of art, craft or creative work of your Original Characters!

Opening the folders back up!

* The previous folders are archived to speed up the process instead of needing to sort through all those deviations. Excuse the mess in folders that were made before today!

* New, simpler folder categories! Before submitting, PLEASE read the folder descriptions and rules!
FAQ, Folder Descriptions, and RulesFAQ:
Q: What does DAOCC stand for?
A: Deviant Art Original Characters Club.
Q: Can I submit [...]?
A: Read the rules located on the front page or below.
The Folder Descriptions are also just below, which specify in more detail what can be submitted and where. Not all of the mods specify why your submission was declined, but chances are the reason is in there! :la:
Q: Why is my artwork not being approved? It's been # hours/days/weeks
A: Chances are, we haven't gotten through the logs yet.  We get a lot of submissions from over three thousand members, and go through them with a small team. Please be patient! It can sometimes take a week or more to get to some submissions. If it has been over 1 week, feel free to leave a comment IN THE SUBMISSION THREAD OF YOUR IMAGE [which can be found in the correspondence center of your inbox, assuming you ha

* New contributors PLEASE read the rules and folder descriptions as well. There was so much voted through to folders (especially the Scenes/Objects folders) that was wrongly submitted. Hopefully the new folders are easier for everyone! :D

* All pending submissions accepted will end up in the archives due to the folder changes. Please withdraw and resubmit to the new improved folders!

* Thanks for being a part of DAOCC! Your one stop shop for everything OC. :P

DAOCC submissions and group will be closed temporarily!

Just a heads up that after my data rolls over, I'm going to pull an all-nighter (or two lol) to get the group reorganized this weekend!

The split folders were great, but the group has gotten so large it leads to many, many archives. So I'm going to be simplifying the folder organizations and cleaning up a bit all around, then writing new guidelines if needed for the moderation team. Speaking of, if you'd like to become a contributor, please let me know! :D  

Thank you for your patience, I will re-open submissions and things as quickly as possible!  If all goes well, I will be able to start this undertaking tonight after 2am EST.

Wanted to alert everyone so that you won't think the group is dead when you're not allowed to submit for a bit. :P

Thank you!
